List of ingredients
1. Cleanse the wound in accordance with local clinical protocol.
2. Select an appropriate dressing size.
3. Prepare and clean the skin surrounding the wound area and remove excess moisture. Any excess hair should be clipped to ensure close approximation to the wound.
4. Using a clean technique remove one of the protector films from ALLEVYN Life and anchor the adhesive side of the dressing to the skin. Smooth the dressing over the wound ensuring there are no creases.
5. Remove the remaining protector film and smooth the dressing over the remainder of the wound without stretching, ensuring no creases. Only the pad area of the dressing must be adhered across the entire surface of the wound.
6. ALLEVYN Life can be used to dress awkward areas such as elbows; the dressing corner lobes can be overlapped when positioning the dressing, ensuring no creasing or stretching occurs.
Dressing should be changed if it gets dirty or loses its adhesion bond. Please follow the manufacturer’s Instructions for Use and change the dressing under doctor’s guidance.
